% received the vaccine in the 2010-2011 season. we will go to indianapolis to a nurse. go ahead, steve. caller: i think the mandatory vaccine is ridiculous, forcing employees to do that. the vaccine has heavy metals, mercury. a lot of people don't know that. another thing that most people don't understand is all these flu shot are doing is causing viruses mutate quicker than what they would normally do. viruses mutate very fast wears bacteria does not. by pumping yourself with artificial vaccines, which only protect you against six strains to eight strains and there's over 250 strains out there, you're not really accomplishing anything. if you have to help the immune system, i suggest not getting them. i have never had the flu in 12 years and have never taken a flu shot. it's ridiculous. people need to research and figure this stuff out and quit believing what everybody's telling them. host: do you belong to a union? caller: i do not. host: do you have union representation at your facility? caller: i really don't know, because i don't work at a hospital anymore. i do home health care.

to move on to steve in northampton, pa., on the independent line. caller: i have been working since i was 18, and i am now 50. every year since then everything with the health insurance has been pretty good for me and my family. but what i do not understand is what the health-care mandates and insurance companies receiving, which is essentially a tax from each individual in the country, to offset other cost for insurance companies, and i know the insurance companies to a lot of experimentation and stuff like that for future cures, and they do spend the money in those areas, but what i am concerned about is our government has not shown the bill to the people in fall of what exactly the expenses are going into the future. up in canada i know for a fact that if i was in an accident some more or had a fishing accident, and i was from out of the country, they would treat me first. i know for a fact that through the government health care of their, their tax system is believe each family's budget dry. they have a waiting period sometimes where you could be in the hospital and be no. 18 or 2

not enough to pull it off. >> paul: steve, let me, is there a silver lining here at all that maybe the public will begin to understand that you can't reduce the deficit with a tax increase? you just can't do it. this represents what, 600 billion dollars they say over ten years, that's about 6, 7% max of what the deficit is? >> great point, paul. let me step back a minute and say that you and i and dan and eric will lived through the budget deals for 25, 30 years, this is the first and almost none of them have worked out very he well. but this is the first budget deal i can recall dating back to the early reagan years, there wasn't a pretense of cutting spending. usually $3 of phony tax cuts for-- >> there was a tax increase in the deal with extension of unemployment. and now i think the republicans are on a little higher ground as we go forward. you saw president obama in his little press conference after he signed the bill saying this is only the first of many tax increases to come in 2013. i believe the republicans are not going to budge an inch on that, i think they're going to

anybody who thinks this is a certainty is crazy. as steve just said, president obama is saying he wants more tax increases. there is no solution on the other side. there is no certainty out there. people are looking at very expensive obamacare and no way to pay for it. >> paul: if we can afford it after paying your tax bill, you might want to hire a lobbyist. it was awarded with $400 million in tax breaks in fiscal cliff deal. we'll tell you who the other big winners were when we come back. >> president obama for his part praised this week's huge new tax increase saying that millionaires and billionaires will finally pay their fair share under the fiscal cliff compromise, that is unless they were smart enough to hire a lobbyist. those folks managed to get their taxes reduced in the deal, as congress handed out 78 million dollars in tax write-offs for nascar track owners 222 million dollars in tax rebates forum distillers, and 430 million in tax credit for hollywood producers, and billions more in green energy give aways. so, mary, i thought this was about social justice, the rich
